 Michael Moody
Position:
Associate Head Coach

Entering the 2011-12 season, Mike Moody--who facilitates all capacities of the program--is in his seventh year as a water polo coach at Colorado State.

He is starting 13 years as a water polo and swim coach at the college, high school, and club levels.

When Moody took over water polo at CSU, the program, which is the newest of all sports at CSU, was still building. Under Moody's tutelage, though, water polo has begun earning respect, not only in the region, but across the nation.

In 2011, CSU entered the Western Water Polo Assocation conference championship as the No. 4 seed, its highest regular-season finish in program history. That year, the Rams also received votes in the national poll for the first time in program history and, under Moody's watch, earned their first All-American in Ali Pavlik.

Moody also helped the Rams partner with he Veterans Memorial Aquatics Center, a state-of-the-art venue located in Thornton, Colo., and the new home of the Rams beginning this season. The center will help bring national competition to the state of Colorado. It will be the first time that CSU will play its home contests in a regulation-size pool.

Moody is coaching success in the pool, but also in the classroom. In May 2011, CSU was recognized for its achievement in the classroom, as it was one of just 31 teams nationally with a combined grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.

The leader has also been honored for his wisdom of the sport as he was nominated for the Western Water Polo Association Coach of the Year in 2009.

A lot of his enthusiasm for swimming and water polo comes from being a competitive athlete for over 10 years. As a swimmer at Green River High School, Moody earned four varsity letters, three all-conference honors, three all-state selections and an automatic All-American relay time that still stands as a state record today.

The athlete attended Grossmont College, where he earned an associate's degree. He swam two years at Grossmont, with his team placing third and fifth at state two different years. He also played water polo, placing sixth at state and winning the conference championship.

Moody brings a wealth of coaching experience to Colorado State. He has coached many teams in both swimming and water polo. He also has coached or been the assistant coach for nine league championship teams as well as 10 teams that have gone to the CIF playoffs while in San Diego. In the winter of 2001 Moody helped coach the Poway High School women's water polo team to a CIF championship.

Moody is currently attending Colorado State, earning a bachelor's degree in history.
